Part 9 Division 8 Subdivision 2
Subdivision 2 Reductions for pensioners
214   When entitlement arises
A water supply authority is to reduce a service charge under this Subdivision if—

215   Reduction of total charges
An eligible pensioner who is liable for a service charge for any land for any charging year is required to pay, for all service charges payable for that land for that year, no more than an amount calculated by dividing the nominal amount in relation to those charges by the number of persons liable for those charges.
216   Reduction of instalments for charges
An eligible pensioner who is liable for an instalment of a service charge for any land for any charging year is required to pay, as an instalment for all service charges payable for that land for that year, no more than an amount calculated by—
(a)  dividing the nominal amount in relation to those charges by the number of persons liable for those charges, and
(b)  dividing the result of that division by the number of instalments payable in relation to those charges.
217   Application by person who becomes eligible pensioner after charge is levied
If a person becomes an eligible pensioner after the day on which a service charge is levied or imposed, the person is entitled to a reduction of the charge proportionate to the number of days remaining after the day on which the person becomes an eligible pensioner in the charging year for which the charge is levied or imposed.
